JANCA LOOKING TO TAKE CALIFORNIA DIRT POINT LEAD SATURDAY

INDIANAPOLIS -- Bobby Michnowicz has been the point leader in USAC California Ford Focus Dirt Midget Car Series action for most of the 2006 season. But Keith Janca would like for that to change soon.

Janca looks to take the point lead for the first time Saturday, as the series continues action, this time at Ventura Raceway in California. Janca is only eight points behind Michnowicz as the second half of the season gets underway.

A native of Ontario, Calif. Janca has one victory in series competition to Michnowicz's two, but has been steadily more consistent over the past three races. Both drivers are looking for their initial USAC championships.

But they can't afford to let up at this point, as Chris Veach is closing on both drivers. His 355 points are only 20 less than Michnowicz, though he is still looking for his first victory of the season in the Dirt division. His brother, Cameron, has three feature victories, all at Ventura.

Six of the eight California Dirt Focus races this season have been held at Ventura.
